|Silver Spitfire and RAF Typhoon flying together over UK.|
Two intrepid aviators – Matt Jones and Steve Brooks – have left Goodwood Aerodrome in order to attempt to fly a Silver Spitfire around the world, taking in some of the most famous landmarks on the planet from the Grand Canyon in the West to the snow-capped peak of Mount Fuji in the East. One of the first flights was accompanied by a Royal Air Force Typhoon that escorted the Silver Spitfire from RAF Coningsby.
Flight Seargant Matt Field Survival Equipment Technician, was involved with the Silver Spitfire team on behalf of the Royal Air Force.
The expedition will reunite the Spitfire with the many countries that owe their freedom, at least in part, to this iconic aircraft. The unmistakable sight and sound of this aircraft once again gracing the skies aims to inspire future generations more than eighty years after R.J. Mitchell’s timeless design first graced the skies.
